faithful, adj.: Promise to hold on to me in a way you will not hold on to anyone else.
Love is not a profession
genteel or otherwise
sex is not dentistry
the slick filling of aches and cavities
you are not my doctor
you are not my cure,
nobody has that
power, you are merely a fellow/traveler.
— Margaret Atwood, “Is/Not” (via larmoyante)
Each and every one of these lines… wow.
Each speaks volumes.
